Celebrating Bay Area Craft Beer & Brewers

Help Us Create Opportunity

Learn about and give to the BABG's Scholarship Endowment for creating diversity in the craft beer community

The Official 2023 SF Beer Week Collab pictured above kicked off the Bay Area Brewers Guild's effort to create change. Proceeds from the release, combined with financial commitments from the Guild, contributions from our amazing trade partners, and donations from both fellow guild members and the greater craft community, are helping our organization establish an endowment facilitated by University of California Davis Continuing and Professional Education, and committed to providing access to brewing education courses and brewing certificate programs. Learn about the collaboration project here. Read about the endowment and make a donation today here .

Engage with Members at the Freshest Fest in the World!

Connect with brewers ahead of and during The Freshtival, May 6 — Click to view Sponsor Opportunities

Voted the Best Craft Beer Event of 2022 in the North Bay Bohemian Readers Poll — and hands-down acknowledged as one of the world's most daring events thanks to its requirements for freshness (all beer poured must have been packaged within 7 days prior to the event — The Freshtival is beloved by members. Featuring a Brewers Lunch, great setting among the redwoods and plenty of mixing and mingling with brewers, the event is also an essential fundraiser for the Guild. Come join the fun, engage, network with members and showcase your wares. A Freshtival Sponsorship, combined with our Trade Partner Program, offers loads of benefits and high-touch interactions with brewers, all while delivering an amazing day of the freshest brews you can imagine.
